As One Stop Social are driven by our commitment to the highest quality of support and development for social work and care professionals across the UK, we know we do things a little bit differently. Our ‘customers’, social media followers and everyone invested in our success are an extended One Stop Social community. And, like any good community, we like to celebrate good news with you when it comes our way. Our recent collaboration is most definitely good news.
We’re so excited to announce that we’ve partnered with the Greater Manchester Social Work Academy (GMSWA)! Don’t know what GMSWA are? That’s what we’re setting about to fix! We’ll be showcasing their Teaching Partnership and helping promote the positive change within the sector.
The GMSWA is a grouping of 3 Higher Education Institutions (Salford University, Manchester Metropolitan and Manchester University) and 10 Local Authorities (Salford, Manchester, Rochdale, Oldham, Bolton, Bury, Tameside, Stockport, Wigan and Trafford) and some private and voluntary sector representatives (PVI’s).
The Academy hopes to offer an integrated, co-ordinated and high-quality response to Social Work training, practice and continuous professional development across Greater Manchester. Our collaboration will be to raise their profile to social work practitioners across the region and nationally, so that more people in the sector know how the GMSWA can facilitate professional development and the fantastic work they’re currently undertaking.
We know this collaboration will help us stay true to our goal of putting you, the social work and care professionals, first – keep an eye out for more news soon!
